    Woman's Suffrage: Five State Postcards. All five of these cards are very rare. (1) The New York postcard is an invitation to a suffrage meeting. This was produced in 1915, the year the suffragists focused on winning referenda in four large eastern states- New York, Pennsylvania., Massachusetts, and New Jersey. This example has mild toning and foxing. (2) The real photo postcard pictures the touring of the life size replica of the Liberty Bell called the Women's Liberty Bell. As part of the Pennsylvania campaign, it traveled over 4,000 miles passing through every county in the state. (3) The Missouri postcard's message states that women need the vote not to be like men, as the detractors to the franchise claim, but to effectively carry out their role as women. (4) The Maryland card is an advertisement for the suffrage play "The Convert". Distributed by the Just Government League, it is actually an English Stock Card that was imported to America and printed with an American message. This example has light staining on the lower left corner and slight bend marks on the upper right. (5) The California postcard is nice, although it has some abrasions on the front and remnants of album mounting on all four corners. All measure 5.5" x 3.5" and, other than conditions already noted, are very good.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
